Decorating Ideas for Small Living Rooms – #Decorative Ideas #design # for #small #Living Rooms
Now is the new year and the color trends for 2011 have started to emerge. Believe it or not, many of the sweaters we wear this year, napkins and tablecloths we buy and pillows that we place on sofas will surprisingly have the same color. Thanks to the "color of the year", a color and a few color palettes will stand out from the crowd and become the colors that will fill our wardrobes, home and life without most of us even noticing. Some may think it is a marketing program, but colors really become a part of the time. So when you look back 10 years from now, this year's color will be "meaningful".
Last year, the color of the year was turquoise, a color that symbolizes healing and compassion. This color is inspired by water and sky and represents an escape for many people. So what could possibly be next?
Well, Pantone released the color of the year in 2011 and it's called "Honeysuckle" (Pantone 18-2120). This color is filled with confidence, courage and courage. Honeysuckle's bold spirit will fill you, lift you up and keep you motivated year-round. Full of vibe and vigor, Honeysuckle can be a bold contrast to turquoise escapism. Honeysuckle makes us deal with everyday problems and face them fully. It goes against the gloomy economy and the abundance of bland colors in the current market. "During stressful times, a color that honeysuckle lifts and stimulates people's mood," said Leatrice Eiseman, CEO of the Pantone Color Institute. Caught between an intense pink and a red, Honeysuckle can easily be worn by both men and women. It is a striking and eye-catching shade that looks good both day and night and will give a lively feel to the interior spaces when used on walls, pillows, bed covers, small appliances and tableware.
Honeysuckle is an updated color that gives a bold and dynamic feel when used in large parts of a house such as an entrance, bedroom or living room. It is perfect to use in craftsman home plans. When used in the kitchen or dining room it will stimulate your appetite. But a good way to integrate this color into the kitchen is to use it with place mats, bedding, glass, lights and even small appliances. If you need to cover old or worn cabinets, try painting that honeysuckle. Or, for an even bolder statement, paint an accent wall in Honeysuckle for a lively blast of energy in the kitchen, corridor or family room.
Since Honeysuckle is probably considered a more feminine color, it may not be a decorator's first choice when trying to arrange a home to sell on the property market, but if the color Honeysuckle is used in subtle details, the house for sale will surely stand out in the crowd .
Other color palettes will light up
Create a cheerful and light hearted home with a citrus yellow hue. Not only will it emit positive energy, it will keep your mood nice. Make your home interesting and use this color in unexpected areas like a powder room or dining room. It also looks fantastic mixed with a soft blue and khaki color. Research has shown that yellow is uplifting, helps people fight fatigue, curb anxiety, improves relaxation and maintains a positive mood. Who doesn't want it every day?
With vintage comeback, smoky violets, deep brown or burgundy, berry colors and even bronze will transform your inner home into something rich and elegant. Elegant and sophisticated, pair these colors with dark wood furniture and leather upholstery and your home will exude style.
On the contrary, in many ways against the vintage color palette, the farm plan is inspired palette. With society's current sense of trying to get "back to basics", this color palette uses the colors that are often seen in a farmer's market for inspiration. Playful oranges, leafy greens, bold blues and textured brown tones give your home the earthy feel of nature.
Last year, turquoise was a color of the year and symbolized an escape, so if you want to stick to that fantasy, but change gear a bit for 2011, why not try translucent colors with a pearl or satin finish? Creamy white, soft shades of gray and neutral sage tones will make your home feel like a getaway while adding a soft retro feel.
Getting back to the basics of the way we live in 2011 will also resonate with another color palette that includes tribal colors and many other earth tones. The concept of a "tribe" reflects the concept of today's societies and reflects how important people are around us. Rich oranges, browns, indigo blues and curry colors will dominate this palette and add excitement to all the interior spaces of your home.
